witnessed one or both of these collisions. george, can you hear us? >> i can hear you. >> what did you see? >> i was in a car driving up just gotten out of the battery tunnel driving north on west street when enormous explosion happened. and i think it was larger than a construction explosion. i looked out the window and what appeared to be an enormous tire smashed into the ground and i believe it hit the car to the right of me. it was just so scary. and there was also a ton of debris fall. i jumped out of the car and i ran south away from the building because i thought there would be further explosions. >> and have you seen anyone injured on the ground? >> a man next to me was hit by a piece of debris on his arm, and they said that someone had been badly hurt in a car ahead of me. i'm not certain if it was the car next to me. i can't verify that. all i can say is a lot of debris was falling. it was very confusing because everybody, i think, immediately assumed that a bomb had exploded and that sort of -- you know, had people thinking that furthe. bombs may explode. there was sort of a rus
in its tracks. this is why president obama wants us to buck up. i'm following those orders in a commentary tonight. >>> and john boehner and his crew, they don't really care about the middle class. they don't care about the divided american we live in, because you see the income gap between the rich and poor is at an all-time high and republicans have nothing to say about it. jessie jackson sounds off. what can we do about it? president obama takes off the gloves and hammering fox news. he says fox promotes a point of view that is destructive. now, for a guy who always rips on the cables, i think the president would do a pretty good job if he was on cable. we do it every night, mr. president. this is the story that has me fired up tonight. the most powerful elected republican in america is plotting to stop the united states government dead in its tracks procedurally. on monday night, senator "waterloo" jim demint warned he would place a hold on any legislation that would not been cleared by his office before the close of business today. demint, as i said a couple weeks, he'

in america. today, finding work using 140 characters or less, i twitter to land you a new job. the show starts right now. >>> well, and then there was one with. treasury secretary tim geithner, the last man standing in president obama's economic team. and his days may be numbered as well. chief white house economic adviser, larry summers, as you probably heard by now, leaving the administration at the end of the year, headed back to harvard, presumably to teach students how to steal a bunch of money and cover it up and go back to your job. others decided to flee washington before everyone realizes the true mess that exists in this country. let's examine larry's legacy, shall we? too big to fail, more or less permanent. argue create certainty, more bailouts, these come from the feds, wouldn't have to vote on it, wouldn't be so icky as having to go to public and ask for money. definitely keep the cops, the rating agencies specifically working for the bankers who pay them to create the aaa ratings that may or may not be true. how else are you going to sell that to a pension fund? of course
the shark. the man who wrote the notorious sitcom in u.s. history, or episode i should say, defends what he did with the fawns. maybe she's right. the show starts right now. well, apparently the president thinks if we keep printing money we don't have, ignore the ongoing extraction that's plaguing our country, eventually the economy will turn around. forget fixing the system that keeps all the capital with the select few who gamble it or incentivize those with capital to take it out of the country? why would you do that? call it free trade. the president's latest proposal, i should say, a spending tree of $50 on new infrastructure spending. now that we don't need the infrastructure, it's interesting to spend the money we don't have while you leave a giant hole in the bucket seeping out of the country. the president's plan to rebuild 150,000 miles of roads, 4,000 miles of rail line. critics lining up calling the president's plan an ineffective one that will plunge us further into debt. of course, the republicans no more ready to address our real problems, just happy to take the job of screwi

against u.s. troops. jones continued to say only god's word would sway him. that word apparently came today from our guest or via our guest standing by, imam muhamma muhammad musri, standing by from the islamic society of central florida who says he has arranged a meeting between jones and imam rauf of the islamic center planned for two blocks from ground zero in new york city. jones described this as a deal to move that islamic center in new york and said then that not only was he canceling his koran burning saturday but that no one should burn any korans. that was what he said then. >> we are, of course, now against any other group burning korans obviously. we have accomplished our goal. we have accomplished what we feel god wants us to do. we would right now ask no one to burn korans. we are very, very strong on that. as strong as we were that they should burn korans. it is now not the time to do it. >> mr. jones was told, however, that new york organizers of that islamic center said they have not agreed to move it. jones was asked whether he felt tricked in exactly what he was tol

towards us, we expect to see the rain by 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon getting heavier as the day wears on. w we expect earl parallel to the outer banks. just about 2:00, 3:00 tomorrow morning and as it continues up the coast to the jersey shoreline and then new england, we expect it might possibly make landfall along to nantucket where it juts out. it doesn't have to make landfall to cause major problems. it is moving forward at 18 miles per hour. that will increase the possibility of storm surge where you get most of the damage through the storm surge, but we look for heavy rains, high winds and, again, hurricane force winds extend out 90 miles from the center of the storm. so you don't have to make landfall to get major impact from this hurricane. we'll continue to monitor it and there will be an update coming up from the national hurricane center within the hour. more details for you. >> thanks very much, al. let's get over to meteorologist bill karins. i can tell you fraught talking to al earlier, those winds have picked up where he is. what are things looking like right now? >> i am

out and shall enjoy covering very much. joining us for this big primary night is chris matthews, host of "hardball." and lawrence o'donnell. the host of the soon to debut last word with lawrence o'donnell. thanks. i really appreciate it. let me ask you this. you think no question the republican party finds a by to fall in love with her and get behind her? >> they have to. i already saw a letter from the senate republican campaign committee. they've already gotten excited about her. they are going to do what they have to do. i think you pointed out rather correctly, you notice the fact that the defeated republican candidate didn't endorse her tonight. so that bit of fence mending has yet to be done and it may not be done. i would have been shocked if she had gotten 40% tonight. up until late today, in fact, well into the evening, the establishment types from delaware were saying, this isn't going to happen. this is a shattering upset. there is no doubt about it. nobody expected it. they were talking 60% for castle late this afternoon. they assumed they had her well in hand. and look wh
to join us on tv today. >> gold coins. you know what else? they have chocolate in the middle. >> the great scandal of 2010. thank you, keith. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. we begin tonight with the great unveiling. house republicans held their bik big take your jacket off photo op today to prevent their agenda for this election year. it was a bit of a flop. not in terms of the photo-op. the photo-op looks awesome. the blue shirts, it's amazing. no problem there. but the reception it received, that greeted it upon arrival was blunt and not positive. their big election year pledge was called, drek and pablum and full of glaring contradictions. also, milquetoast. those were things from people on the right. those terms were from the most popular, heavily trafficked red wing blog, red state and for the club for growth. if you are in the business of trying to figure out what might happen if republicans win the elections, the most important thing to note is that the pledge is of very little help for mapping out the impact on the country if all these republicans
with the newest winner. christine o'donnell. she staged a disdcisive upset in the u.s. senate race in delaware. state party leaders said this woman couldn't get elected dogcatcher and karl rove dismissed her as nutty. the national republican party is promising campaign money and even the vice president has a warning to democrats. >> i wouldn't sell short these candidates. i think that in my state, this new republican candidate is going to have an awful lot of money. i think you're going to see it pouring in and the third party operations, we'll take it very, very seriously. big mistake not to take it seriously. >> nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell is in washington for us. kelly, good morning. this is really fascinating and a new poll out today showing americans, basically, don't know who the tea party is. about the same number have favorable and unfavorable views but an awful lot of people are undecided and you sort of wonder if the real selling point they have is simply change. the same way it was two years ago. people aren't happy and this is a group that offers something d
tradition now of delegations leaving the room in protest. the u.s. and several european delegations walked out after ahmadinejad said that most people believe the u.s. government was responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks. >> translator: some segments within the u.s. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining american economy and its grips on the middle east in order to save the zionist regime. the majority of the american people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view. >> he's right. did a hell of a job reversing the declining economy. the white house said the president thought they were utterly ridiculous. earlier the president spoke saying "the door remains open to diplomacy should iran choose to walk through it." president obama also urged world leaders to stop in his words tearing down israel and instead push for a peace deal. >> this time we should reach for what's best within ourselves. if we do, when we come back here next year we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the united nations, an independent sovere
nation." the conferences going on all day here. secretary of education arne duncan will join us this half hour. i'm chuck todd. >> good morning. i'm savannah guthrie. let's get to the rundown. at the top for us, the top love message out of the white house. first vice president biden telling progressives, stop whining. now the president in a new interview out this morning says it is inexcusable and irresponsible for them to sit out the midterms. in "rolling stone" the president says there may be complaints about us not having gotten certain things done, not fast enough, not making certain legislative compromises but he goes on to say if people want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place. in the meantime, the vice president on with lawrence o'donnell last night explained those whiner comments. >> there's some on the democratic base, not the core of it, that are angry because we didn't get every single thing they want. it's time to just buck up here, understand that we can make things better. continue to move forward. >> the president, meanwhil
their neighborhood. what a wonder. it's what made us great. what a country and we can have it again. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" tonight from new york. these stories are hitting "my hot buttons" and on the table at this hour. wannabe house speaker john boehner. the wizard behind the pledge to america says the american people aren't ready for solutions. how about that? i'm ready to give him a few words on my mind coming up in a moment. >>> governor chris christie, he's the biggest threat to our nation's scschools. when he's not yelling at people at town hall meetings and trimming the fat at expense of our teachers, i'm doing my part for nbc's education notion. >>> the false prophet glenn beck is freaking out about dangerous killers coming from the left. his rhetoric is what's dangerous and it needs to stop. >>> this is the story that has me fired up tonight. john boehner has been out in the sun just probably a little bit too long, hasn't he? the tan man is flustered and back pedalling on his pledge to amer

and exceeding in high levels. don't tell me that these issues are going to stop us from succeeding. we can no longer make excuses in america for the appalling failure we're seeing in so many of our school systems across the country. >> is mark zuckerberg going to be hands-on with money he's handing off? >> he said clearly, i'm a business leader, i'm not an education specialist. i want to put the money in, i'm going to hold you accountable for the results we discussed, but he's not going to be in the mix. he's a great man who said my business i hire great leaders to get the job done. i found the city, he thought and the governor, frankly, committed to my values and he believes he can bring it home. he's not from newark. he has no relationship to our city but a lot of things of newark he believed, leadership at the state level, city level, also the local level, signs of success that we've had, innovations go on that are already extraordinary, that he wanted to be involved with. >> you heard the mayor of new york city take on teacher union say we are going to eliminate tenure, base it on meri
. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh

that every election is a choice. if you have to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you make the best available choice. >> that's an interesting insight into the obama's strategy. he talked about how what obama is doing is to try to draw mitch mcconnell and john boehner on to television where they aren't so good and expose them as part of the no team. part of a long interview we did today. part of an upcoming documentary. by the way, that was taped today at the clinton institute on american politics, university college dublin. one of the many institutes being set up by the former president. >>> james clyburn said if republicans win the house, they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. darrell issa said he was being paranoid and goofy. up next, we'll ask iss what what republicans are planning to do with the power that he will have in his hand. you're watching "hardball" f
